You wake up in a large dark room.

What do you do?

<ooc Someone post a move e.g I check my pockets and then someone else post the results carrying on until we get bored of it. Try not to kill the player ;)   >

Looking through your pockets, you find an old cellphone, But the batteries are dead.

You try to remember your name.

After a moment, you realize that you simply can't remember. How Odd.

You start feeling around the floor, looking for anything nearby.

You see a small rat, beside an overlarge rat-tunnel. The vermin is chittering and seems to be beckoning you to follow it into the darkness. How strange.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

You crawl down and follow the rat into the tunnel.  It squeaks and looks back at your periodically as you make your way down the long passage.  In the distance, there is a faint but warm light.  It grows a little brighter as you approach.  Finally, you exit the tunnel.

The light stings your eye's for a moment but they soon adjust and you see that you are in a brightly lit garden with a pretty little house at the end.

Upon setting foot into the house, you find yourself staring into a pair of large, yellow orbs.

Randomly picking one of the orbs, you reach out to touch it, only to find yourself surrounded by a ferocious golden glow. When it clears, you find yourself inside the orb. There is a pixie inside the orb with you.

You slip and fall on your backside, in the process smacking the glass with your defunct cellphone. The orb shatters, releasing you back to your full size!

You are inside the house. There is a cracked yellow orb, a yellow orb, and a startled-looking pixie in the room with you.

The pixies' features went from sad to maddened. "How dare you destroy my magnificent globe?", it shrieked in a piercing, horrid voice, its eyes bulging and mouth opening impossibly wide, like a snake about to devour its victim.
